Week 246 Allsorts - Use Brads

Good Morning Everyone,
I hope that this finds you all well and enjoyed a little romance on Valentine's Day yesterday.
I sincerely hope that you are all safe and avoiding all of these awful storms that we keep having.
This week at Allsorts Helene is setting our Challenge and she is asking us to ................
'Use Brads' in our design.
This is my project
As you will see I have used the brads for the middle of the flowers and also the middle of the ribbon bow. The brads are pearl and silver and are from the Hobby House.
The rest of the card has been made up using Couture Creations Emboss, Stamp and Cut . It is a lovely set and combines all elements in this card.  The flourish is a Cheery Lynn design which I have cut once and separated it off. For the background stamped image I have used Adirondack Currant and then blended using Distress Ink  Aged Mahogany. The flowers have been glossed with a little Cosmic Shimmer twinkles.  The string of pearls are also from the Hobby House.
This week we have 2 excellent sponsors Digidarla and Craft Fairy. Thankyou to them both.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to have a look at all of the other Design Team members lovely designs.
I hope that you enjoy a lovely weekend and that you find time for some crafting time.
Bye for now
Jo xx
